(Southeast Asia - East Indies) Indiae Orientalis Nova Descriptio
Early map of Southeast Asia by a great Dutch cartographer, showing the extent and limitations of European knowledge of the region. While the larger islands of Indonesia are charted with some accuracy, the southern coast of Java and the Lesser Sundas are charted only in general outline, and New Guinea is particularly incomplete. In all areas we see coastal features and settlements, but there is little interior detail .The Philippines are well described, and the Mariana Islands (“Ladrones”) are given undue size and prominence.
